Simply breathtaking! Admire Parks Canada’s treasures.
In 2011, Parks Canada celebrated its 100th birthday. Throughout the year, every month, we presented our organization to you using a different theme and prepared wallpapers related to that theme. It is with great pride that we offer these wallpapers to you as a legacy of our centennial.

Sirmilik National Park and its surrounding region has a rich legacy of cultural resources that tell the story of human occupation of the area – a story that dates back thousands of years. The northern landscape reveals evidence of early Thule winter houses sunk slightly below ground level with platforms for sleeping and food preparation. The dwellings were covered with whale bones supporting skins and sod.
